He is the patron saint of Austria, of the city of Vienna, of Lower Austria, and, jointly with Saint Florian, of Upper Austria. His feast day is November 15. Leopold also fostered the development of cities, such as Klosterneuburg, Vienna and Krems (Krems an der Donau). The last one was granted the right to mint (mint (coin)) but never attained great importance. On his journey back that winter, Richard, travelling in disguise, shortly before Christmas 1192 had to stop near Vienna, where he was recognized (supposedly because of his signet ring) and arrested in Erdberg (modern Landstraße district). For some time the king was imprisoned in Dürnstein, and in March 1193 was brought before Emperor Henry VI at Trifels Castle, accused of Conrad's murder. Leopold's share of the immense ransom, supposedly six thousand buckets—about 23 tons—of silver, became the foundation for the mint in Vienna, and was used to build new city walls for Vienna, as well as to found the towns of Wiener Neustadt and Friedberg (Friedberg, Styria) in Styria. However, the duke was excommunicated (Excommunication) by Pope Celestine III for having taken a fellow crusader (Crusades) prisoner. Very popular in her ancestral homeland of Austria as well as in Germany, her character appeared in the 1926 German motion picture, ''Frauen der Leidenschaft'', played by Fern Andra. In Vienna her beauty caught the attention of painter Gustav Klimt whose primary focus was on female sexuality. Their story is retold in a film released in 2006 titled ''Klimt'', in which the character "Lea de Castro" is based on Cléo de Mérode. thumb Yushchenko at the University of Amsterdam, with chloracne (File:Viktor Yuschenko.jpg) from TCDD (2,3,7,8-Tetrachlorodibenzodioxin) dioxin (Polychlorinated dibenzodioxins) poisoning (2006). The campaign was often bitter and violent. Yushchenko became seriously ill in early September 2004. He was flown to Vienna's Rudolfinerhaus clinic for treatment and diagnosed with acute pancreatitis, accompanied by interstitial edematous changes, due to a serious viral infection and chemical substances that are not normally found in food products. Yushchenko claimed that he had been poisoned by government agents. After the illness, his face was greatly disfigured: jaundiced (Jaundice), bloated, and pockmarked. Reicha was born in Prague into a family of a town piper. His father died when Reicha was just 10 months old, and his mother was uninterested in the boy's education. At the age of 10 the young composer ran away from home, and was subsequently raised and educated in music by his uncle Josef Reicha. When the family moved to Bonn, Josef secured for his nephew a place at the Hofkapelle, but for Reicha this was not enough. He studied composition secretly, against his uncle's wishes, and entered the University of Bonn in 1789. When Bonn was captured by the French in 1794, Reicha had to flee to Hamburg, where he made his living by teaching harmony and composition, and studied mathematics and philosophy. Between 1799 and 1801 he lived in Paris, trying to achieve recognition as an opera composer, without success. In 1801 he moved to Vienna, where he studied with Salieri (Antonio Salieri) and Albrechtsberger (Johann Georg Albrechtsberger) and produced his first important works. His life was once again affected by war in 1808, when he had to leave Vienna. Reicha settled in Paris, where he spent the rest of his life teaching composition; in 1818 he was appointed professor at the Conservatoire (Conservatoire de Paris). The wind quintets represent a more conservative trend in Reicha's oeuvre, however, especially when compared to his earlier work, namely the compositions of the Viennese (Vienna) period. Technical wizardry prevails in compositions that illustrate Reicha's theoretical treatise ''Practische Beispiele'' of 1803, where techniques such as bitonality and polyrhythm are explored in extremely difficult sight reading exercises. Demuth, 7 (171) ''36 fugues for piano (36 Fugues (Reicha))'', published in 1803, was conceived as an illustration of Reicha's ''neue Fugensystem'', a new system for composing fugues. Reicha suggested fugal answers could be placed on any scale degree (Degree (music)) (rather than the standard dominant (Dominant (music))) to widen the possibilities for modulation (Modulation (music)) and undermine the tonal (Tonality) stability of the fugue.
